Northwestern Mutual has raised over five million dollars since 2012 to help fight childhood cancer. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation is a national childhood cancer foundation dedicated to raising funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer.

Ronald McDonald House

My team has volunteered for the Meals From The Heart program at Ronald McDonald House. This involves serving warm, home-cooked meals and freshly baked treats to the families who are staying there during their incredibly difficult time.

Feed My Starving Children

Another charity that Northwestern Mutual and I stand behind is Feed My Starving Children. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and they ship these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world.

Naperville Sunrise Rotary Club

I am very involved in the Naperville Sunrise Rotary Club. Through this organization a few of the local groups that we work with are the following as well as other community projects:

  • PADS - Their mission is to end homelessness in DuPage County by providing housing, support services and helping with employment.
  • St. Paddy's Day 5k - Participation in this event is a great way to join into the St. Paddy's Day Spirit. Proceeds from this event will be used to provide health related services to those in need.

Santa's Gift

I have also been a participant in the Santa's Gift program. A non-profit dedicated to bringing holiday cheer to sick children in local hospitals. Myself and other members annually don our Santa Claus outfits and spread holiday joy with the children that need it most.
